Makani Mom, February 24, 2013 (view all comments by Makani Mom)
Touching, interesting, believable, and informative, this book is intended for school children, but some of it is so painfully realistic that I would only recommend it for them if they have a sensitive, compassionate teen or adult to help them talk about it. However, it is well written and easy to read, despite a few grammatical errors and some choppy sentences, and the characters are believable, both the likeable and unlikeable ones. I loved the insights into the "bad" people and the fact that the excellent resolutions to the two major problems were neither predictable nor necessarily what the boy who is telling the story would have first wanted. I'm a grandmother, and I read "The Summer of Riley" twice, which is something I hardly ever do.

"Who say's a dog is a man's best friend?" asks the pillow on Peachie's sofa. Well, to william, his new dog Riley IS his best friend. How valuable is a dog's life? What about a horses? "The Summer of Riley" raises the question of the quality of human law-is it really as flawless as so many seem to think? How do you deal with loss?
